Location [FIX] ICS/JB Gradient Fix - Version 5.5! - [18th July 2012][BLACK Version Added!]



Hello,
I've made a fix for the Galaxy Nexus gradient mapping. It resolves all those horizontal lines showing up on the Galaxy Nexus' settings application and other applications which use that gradient.

NOTE: This fix DOES NOT REMOVE THE GRADIENT (The Black Version does). IT FIXES IT. The original gradient of ICS/JB contains ugly horizontal lines. This fixes replaces those gradients to make them look more smoother and better! In simpler words, IT MAKES THE GRADIENTS BETTER.


FINALLY A UNIVERSAL FLASHABLE ZIP FOR ALL ROMS!


The new version of the fix includes the white gradient, original gradient AND the dark gradient issue fix found in some applications!

BLACK GRADIENT FIX IS ADDED, DOWNLOAD THE BLACK VERSION (Changes the gradient to plain black)

UPDATE - UNIVERSAL FIX - VERSION 5.5 IS NOW UP WITH THE PHONE/DIALER GRADIENT FIX/ BROWSER TABS GRADIENT FIX/ ANDROID ICS KEYBOARD GRADIENT FIX & CAMERA UI FIX AND BETTER COMPATIBILITY WITH JELLY BEAN AND ALSO, BLACK VERSION WITH BLACK DIALER ADDED.

A SPECIAL CAMERA ICON IS FLASHED WITH VERSION 5/5.5

A very big thanks to droidkevlar for creating teaching me how to create the flashable zip!

Instructions to install [NEW] -
  1. Just flash it through recovery!

Voila!
Looks amazing, doesn't it?

If you used a ZipThemer/MetaMorph or VRThemer zip you could make a single zip that would be compatible with all ROMs. Might save you some time from taking requests

I can't tell if I need the gradient fix or not?

It looks ok to me or am I missing something?

The gradient I replaced with mine is the one present in the framework-res.apk, the file names background_holo_dark.png. You could actually see the lines in it.

ALL YOUR ACCOUNTS AND SYNC DATA WILL BE RESET.

Instructions to install -
1. Download the attached framework-res.apk
2. ADB push the framework-res.apk to /system/framework/framework-res.apk (replacing the original one)
3. Reboot Phone

Voila!
Looks amazing, doesn't it?

YOU CAN REQUEST A FIX FOR OTHER ROMS! - Just pull the framework-res.apk and hand it over to me and I'll fix it for you.

The picture uploaded might show up lines, but once you replace the framework-res.apk, you wont see any lines for sure. This one shows lines cuz it's a big image. The actual image used in the framework is of 512x512px which doesnt show any lines. The original one does tho.

I'm trying to replace the .png files myself, but I cannot find background_holo_dark.png ? Could you be more specific of where it is located? :)
